The repeal of the filthy little Electoral Finance Act that stopped free speech was passed yesterday in parliament and now we can all talk freely again in an election year without the threat of some Government stooge breathing down our necks.
Those of you who protested against it, well done, and those of you that voted for it or still support it (like the Greens) should go and live in Zimbabwe.
No surprise that Labour voted to repeal the Act because it helps the incumbent Government, now National , to stay in power.
A new law will be passed closer to election 2011 and this time it will have citizen input and contributions and agreement from all parties in Parliament.
